It’s not every day that we get to see two classic Daimlers. It’s even more rare to see two classic Daimlers that are the same model with sequential number plates. It’s even rarer still to see two Daimlers like this that belong to a husband and wife.

That’s exactly the story behind the two latest additions to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. Our 2 1964 Daimler V8s have come from a married couple who bought them in two separate purchases but ended up with two almost identical cars.

With number plates reading WVG 564 and WVG 565, these 1964 Daimler V8s seemed destined to follow each other throughout life. When one was purchased by the couple, residing in Lowestoft, they fell in love with it and decided they wanted another.

When their second purchase was complete, they saw how similar the two cars were. It seems fitting that these two cars, so close in registration, ended up with a married couple for most of their lives.

After being put into a garage many years ago, both of the cars will need lots of attention before they resemble anything close to their former glory. However, the story behind them is an interesting one that you won’t hear too often.

The Daimler V8 250 is a luxury classic car very similar to a Jaguar MKII and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for these two cars that seem destined to be together.
